Mirage Surf School Morocco offers surf lessons and guiding for all levels — from the absolute beginner to the seasoned pro.

Lie stomach-down on your board with your body in the middle of the board and feet just at or slightly over the tail keeping the nose leveled with the water.
Step 2: Paddling out
Paddle as if you are performing a forward crawl swim stroke with arms out to your sides and hands cupped keeping the board perpendicular to the waves.
Step 3: Selecting and catching a wave
Face the beach, paddle forward along with the wave and time your entry. With your hands in front of your shoulders and palms down, push yourself up to your feet. Stand with your feet shoulder-length apart, back foot parallel with the width of the board and front foot at a 45-degree angle keeping your knees slightly bent to steer and balance.
